Not really. Frankly it's nose heavy. A lot of understeer. But it would really set you back in the seat. It was comfortable to drive as long as you weren't shifting gears. My left leg got bigger than my right. 55 mph back then was a good thing with no overdrive in them gears.
A good friend had one and he could toast me in my ‘69 Camaro in the straight, but put tight corners at speed into the mix and that fat ass end would beat the front end around a corner if you weren’t careful. The ‘69 Camaro was also light in the back, but overall lighter than the 442 and could take corners sideways like it was meant to do so.

Honestly, the modern takes on the original pony and muscle cars are much much better in all aspects except nostalgia. Much less dangerous to drive and higher performance too.

I just wish that they didn't cost an obscene amount of money... and that you could still get a stripped down rocket.

Time value of money

If a corvette in 1969 cost 4,400-4,800
4,800 at 5.5% for 50 years is about 70k

So cars give you a lot more performance and a 100k tune up to boot for the same amount of money


In the year 1969, the United States minimum wage was $1.60. This is equivalent to $11.32 in 2019 dollars.
